Trying to wire up a new coil ! I have installed an optical points thingy, having trouble with the installation of the blaster coil (40000 volts).
The wiring loom to the original coil is on a multi plug. I have identified the + and - on the plug and have run wires to the corresponding + and - mounts on the coil.
Tried to start it and there was a massive power drain, engine not turning and smoke from under the dash !!!

Wish I could be more help but; when you speak of massive power drains followed by smoke, assuming that the polarity is right, you haven't managed to by pass a relay by any chance??

Hmmmm, I think the auto electrician can have a look. He's a peugeot man !
With the high compression, racing gas and advanced timing I needed a more accurate better spark.
Thanks guys
